On the day that that snow is descending upon the nation, I have the pleasure of reviewing a lovely product that transports me to sunnier climes (in my imagination at least!!). I was extremely chuffed to be asked to review one of the latest products to join the BECCA family: Beach Tint in ‘ Strawberry’ – a ‘water resistant colour for cheeks and lips’. It contains anti-oxidant vitamin E, to moisturise and protect and is preservative and paraben free.
I do love the BECCA brand. With 30 shades of foundation in the range it caters to women of all ethnicities and skin tones.
I have to be honest though, tints have never really worked for me – the colours are often too sheer and do not show up on my skin at all. Some of the famous tints such as Benetint and Posietint by Benefit are unfortunately a case in point. As much as I adore the Benefit brand – the ‘tongue-in-cheek’ packaging and quirky counters are a joy to browse – I have found that much of the makeup is just not pigmented enough for my chocolate skin tone…
Thus, I was pleasantly surprised by the rich pigmentation of the BECCA tint. The Strawberry shade is a deep orangey red, which blends effortlessly to produce a warm orange hue on my skin…just perfect for summer (I love wearing orange on my lips and cheeks when it is sunny outside).
The tint can be built up to intensify the colour and it also has a subtle strawberry scent that really lasts. It certainly lived up to its ‘streak –free, kiss-proof’ claims (which is good news for Valentine’s Day)!! I wore it on my lips and it withstood cups of coffee, lunch in the office and a few munchies too (alas – kissing was somewhat absent during my trail, maybe my luck will change on February the 14th)! The tint does give a matt finish on the lips and personally I prefer more of a glossy look – however I put a slick of golden lipgloss on top which did the trick!
Beach Tint would be perfect for both your summer holiday or sunny days in the city…so on that note… roll on summer!
